You Are Enough: You Always Were is an empowering story of how one woman came to recognize the ways in which her childhood, despite its many pitfalls, has played a vital role in her becoming the strong woman that she is. Over the years, she realized the impact that her experiences had on her daily life, which eventually led her to the process of sifting through the ashes of painful memories that have been carefully tucked away, in an effort to free herself from her past.

While there are many books about this struggle, this one offers a unique approach.  It delves specifically into the therapeutic process used by the main character and juxtaposes it with her friend who has been using an entirely different therapeutic process.  In the end, each of these characters is transformed.

Suzanne grew up in a typical family, at least it appeared so from the outside.  She was raised in a suburb of Denver with her parents and siblings.  She left home at the age of 18 and began building life for herself.  She finished graduate school at the top of her class and built a successful business in which she works with the underprivileged population. Throughout much of Suzanne’s life, both personally and professionally, she has been surrounded by dysfunction and substance abuse.  After years of helping others overcome their difficult histories, Suzanne decided to share the journey of one woman’s effort to free herself of her insecurities and demons by changing her thought process and allowing herself to feel again.
